Broken And Battered

The pain is there

Broken and Beaten

She feels she hasn’t got a prayer.

He got her through pretenses

And pretending.

 

The pain is there

Broken and Beaten

She saw through his lies

The first time

He showed his fist

And now she knows

When he threatens

There’s nothing idle about it.

Broken and Beaten

She prays she will

Escape with her life.
